Celebrating Mexico’s Bicentennial Part 1

17 Sep

Wednesday night was so much fun!

Jorge and I had a blast celebrating Mexico’s bicentennial independence day with family and friends!

First, we went to Jorge’s parents church around 9 pm, where they had a Mexican show and lots of food. We couldn’t stay for the whole thing, but it sure was a great family party.

The place was packed! (This outdoor patio was where Jorge and I first met, by the way! Right in front of where I'm standing)

There was lots of dancing

Some singing (by my friend Karina!)

Great traditional food

People decked out in their best traditional outfits

Overall, an amazing time!

Check back tomorrow to see what we did for the rest of the evening!! … a last-minute trip to Playa del Carmen 🙂
